Whitepaper: RAID-1 and Data Stripping Across the GRID

by Universidad de CantabriaJan 01, 2008

This research paper describes how stripping techniques combined with an adequate replication policy across the grid offers the possibility to improve significatively data access and processing times, while eliminating the need for local data mirroring, so saving significatively on storage costs. Tests on a local cluster show that recovery of an IDE lost disk is limited by the disk write speed when a bandwidth corresponding to a fast ethernet connection is available.
